This treatment is referred to as Hopi Ear therapy or Auricular candle therapy or sometimes just simply 'candling'. It is a very ancient therapy which spans millennia and cultures around the world. Some of the earliest evidence of ear candling dates back to early European cave drawings. Other examples date back to the Siberian Prairies, Asia and the native North & South American Indians. The Hopi (the oldest Pueblo people) are acknowledged as bringing this gentle therapy to Europe with the professional assistance of Biosun. Biosun Ear Candles are carefully crafted in Germany from a traditional Hopi recipe. The pure linen roll is impregnated with 100% beeswax and finely powdered herbs such as Sage, St.John's Wort and Chamomile.
The candle, which is hollow works like a chimney. When the candle is lit at one end at the top, there is a mild suction. The rising air inside the candle then sets up a vibration which will gently massage the ear drum. This helps to regulate the pressure inside the ear. The flow of air from the herbal extracts is calming, soothing and its healing properties protect the irritated areas. The warmth of the flow helps to stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems. It also helps to stimulate the energy and reflex points.
